City of Salinas MS4
All Medium and Large Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) were required to obtain a municipal permit under Phase I. A Medium MS4 system serves, or is located in an incorporated place or county with, a population between 100,000 - 249,999, a Large MS4 system serves, or is located in an incorporated place or county with, a population of 250,000 or more. There is only one Phase I MS4 in the Central Coast Region, the City of Salinas. An individual NPDES permit regulates the discharge of storm water from the City of Salinas. The permit requires the city to adopt and enforce a Storm Water Ordinance.
